Nail-biting. You feel as if you've been to the ends of the earth without moving from your seat

Why See Touching The Void?


West End Premiere

Astounding and thrilling, the story of two climbers' fight for survival in the Peruvian Andes, Touching The Void transfers to the West End this winter for a strictly limited run. 

Based on the memoir by Joe Simpson and ensuing BAFTA-winning documentary, this adaptation from David Greig charts Simpson and his friend Simon Yates' ill-fated attempt to scale the Siula Grande in 1985. First seen at the Bristol Old Vic in 2018, this stunning production directed by War Horses' Tom Morris takes you into the very heart of Simpson and Yates' utterly incredible expedition. Intense, life-affirming and shot through with dark humour, Touching The Void promises to be an unmissable theatrical event.
